Lambs Creek Old IN 67 Bridge
Photo taken by Anthony Dillon
The Lamb's Creek Bridge is a rare surviving example of a Pratt through truss bridge, the most common type of metal bridge constructed in Indiana during the late nineteenth-century. It is an excellent example of the work of the Wrought Iron Bridge Company, which supplied more Pratt through trusses to the state than any other Ohio company.
